We have several years of experience in helping businesses take their ideas onto the web.

Website Solutions

Open Source Solutions

We help businesses manage their own solutions by offering services to implement, configure and support open source software including Joomla, Wordpress, Moodle, and Magento.   Open Source software doesn't have the high licence costs contained in proprietary software, and because open source software is developed by the community, anyone (including us) can make modifications to the software to suit your requirements.

Existing Website Support/Maintenance Solutions

We also cater for businesses that have existing websites but want someone to support their existing site.  We can help improve sites by conducting initial inspection reports and providing recommendations for strategicly moving forward with an improved website.


We do not "stick" to one specific technology.   We determine the best solution for you using the most appropriate technology for your business.   From simple static websites to fully customized web applications, here are some of the technologies we use:


The underlining Microsoft Framework for building robust and fully scalable customized web applications for the most demanding solutions.

BOSS (Verb)

A fully robust Microsoft driven Web Framework that provides solutions for Content Management, E-Commerce and Voucher Systems.


One of the most popular template driven Content Management Systems that is most suited to businesses who want to maintain their own website.   With thousand of different extensions, Joomla allows sites to be customized to meet a wide range of different business industries.


The most popular e-commerce system that is completely customized for any online shop front.  Magento supports several New Zealand payment providers and allows an infinite number of products for your customer to purchase online.    Everything is tracked and administer via an online administration portal.


One of the most popular blogging engines available, this piece of software helps businesses promote their business ideas and services by driving people to their blog through digital information.   Wordpress can be integrated into other systems like Joomla to provide more powerful functionality.


Moodle is the leading Learning Management System (LMS) available.  It is used worldwide and is very popular in New Zealand.   Almost every large New Zealand education provider runs an instance of Moodle for their e-learning.   Moodle allows students to download resources, post to Wikis, post a message on forums, interact with other students, upload assignments plus much more.   The best part is that Moodle can be integrated with other systems like Joomla and Wordpress.
